For the month of May I will be working on a 30 day writing challenge. What I hope to accomplish by doing this is achieving greater self-awareness, recalling things that I may have forgotten, digging deep into my thoughts (both present and past), and improving my writing. Will I succeed? I’ll find out on May 31st.

Day one focuses on 10 things that make me really happy:

  1. I’ll start with the obvious ones. My family makes me happy. Like everyone else, we are not perfect but we take care of each other and genuinely love each other.
  2. My friends. I have casual acquaintances that I like, but VERY few that I am really close with. There’s one, in particular, who I know will have my back no matter what and that means everything.
  3. Trees! I just love trees so much.
  4. I love to camp. It can be in a cabin, a camper, or a tent. I enjoy it all!
  5. Going right along with camping, I love the water. It soothes me. Whether on a pontoon, a fishing boat, or a kayak, just put me on the water and I will be happy.
  6. Crafting and reading makes me happy. Sewing, hand embroidery, machine embroidery, painting, crossstitch, paper crafting, and on & on & on.
  7. DIY around the house. I love the satisfaction of doing something myself. We build, roof, landscape. I’ve been known to remodel campers and paint them myself.
  8. Gardening is fun. Especially growing things from seed. It’s nice to watch them turn into something beautiful and/or edible.
  9. Going to church keeps me grounded and reminds me of the person I want to be.
  10. Being a nurse. I like the constant learning and it’s a nice feeling at the end of the day to know that you’ve made a difference in someone’s quality of life.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Stay safe out there!
